Pupi Avati takes us back to the countryside of north-east Italy , two years after "Il Signor Diavolo" (acclaimed literary success, which soon became a film), with another story of fear and suggestion , of those told around the fire, in the distant fifties. This time we are in Lio Piccolo, only apparently a quiet village in the Polesine: the new parish priest Don Stefano Nascetti arrives in the local church, fleeing the Venetian curia. From the temptations that soon overtake him, which bear the name of the young and fascinating teacher Silvana, only a horrible mystery distracts him: the discovery in a basement of a corpse, which seems to be that of the official of the Ministry of Grace and Justice Furio Momentè, who disappeared while investigating the murder committed by a young boy, leaving behind a compromising suitcase of documents. Something continues not to return, even when the findings become two and difficult to attribute: it is at this point that the deputy prosecutor Malchionda is forced to reopen a case closed with excessive haste. Investigators' searches extend from Venice to Rome, discovering the poisonous shadow of a much older and inexplicable Evil, especially in the still naive eyes of the young provincial parish priest. From this novel with a gothic flavor , expertly outlined by the narrator, an ancient world is revealed , steeped in earth, water and mystery , which contains truths so terrible that they can never be revealed.

Director, screenwriter and producer, Pupi Avati is one of the recognized masters of Italian cinema. As an author he has published the bestselling autobiography "The great invention" (Rizzoli 2013) and two successful novels, "The boy in the attic" (Guanda 2015) and "Il Signor Diavolo" (Guanda 2018).
